Gattuso, the Marseillais are nostalgic

Despite his catastrophic record at OM, the Italian technician was appreciated by the players of the Marseille club.

Since Jean-Louis Gasset succeeded Gennaro Gattuso, Olympique de Marseille has been transformed. The Marseille club has a string of convincing victories, both in Ligue 1 and the Europa League.

However, several players on this team seem to have regrets regarding the departure of the Italian technician. “Before being a great coach, he is a great man, insisted on emphasizing Jordan Veretout at a press conference. In the locker room, he passed with everyone, he was close to us. The members of OM cannot say the opposite. »

Catastrophic results

“It hurts because if he is gone, we are primarily responsible. We were the ones on the pitch and couldn’t win. I know he will bounce back and do great things,” continued the midfielder on the eve of the reception of FC Nantes in the championship. Before him, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Lucas Balerdi had already paid tribute to Gennaro Gattuso.

With an average of 1.31 points taken per Ligue 1 match since his arrival, just before the seventh day, the transalpine coach has the worst record since the 2012-2013 season, behind the Spaniard Michel (1.25). Under his orders, OM have only won one victory in 2024. It was in the Coupe de France against Thionville, a National 3 club.
